    Thomas James is becoming one of my favorite pipe carvers. In my opinion he is really underrated and doesn't get the notoriety he deserves. I have also had the chance to meet him and hang out with him at several columbus pipe shows as well as in the shop at smokers haven. He is a heck of a nice...
